Donate to the hospital and Children's Services

Who we are

Weston Area Health NHS Trust has its own charity for Weston General Hospital and Children’s Community Services.

The charity manages the generous donations of people like yourself who kindly give us money or spend time fundraising for us.

You can choose to donate to the hospital, a specific ward or department or donate to Children’s services at Drove Road in Weston and The Barn in Clevedon.

Why your donations are important 

 

Your generosity and support help us provide extra equipment and facilities for our patients, their families, and our staff.

Your donations have helped us buy:

  • X-Ray machines
  • Diagnostic equipment for Cardiology
  • Toys (for children visiting the Paediatric Dept)
  • Items for the ‘Memory Cafe’ for dementia patients
  • TV and soft furnishings for patients and their families

Gift Aid

If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid allows us to claim back tax on your donation. So if you pay £10 we receive £12.50. Tick the box at the back of this leaflet.

(NB. The donor is responsible for meeting any shortfall between tax paid and gift aid claimed.)

 

 

Regular Gift

Regular donations by Standing Order help us cut our administration costs so more of your money goes straight to us. Contact your bank to find out how to set one up.

 

Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to charities of their choice. 

Donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p.

To find out more, contact the payroll department at your place of work.

 

We are always happy to hear for people with fundraising ideas or suggestions, so please do contact us on 01934 647091, if you are interested in supporting us.

 

We have a registered charity number which is 1057589, and we must ask that this number is quoted on all fundraising materials, collecting vessels etc, when money is collected in our name.

 

Thank you for supporting your local hospital and NHS.
